Re: [All] New England Weather

I'm going to Six Flags (Agawam) on Saturday and here's what each Station is saying in Springfield

CBS 3: 84 Sunny
22 News: 85 Sunny
ABC 40/ Fox 6: 86 Sunny

Looks to be a great day to go to the Park and Hurricane Harbor Saturday.

I thought the water park didn't open until Memorial Day.. or is it Memorial Day weekend.

I know last day for the water park is usually Labor Day.

Forecasters: 4 to 8 hurricanes this season

By ASSOCIATED PRESS
May 24, 2012

MIAMI — Federal forecasters predict there will be about nine to 15 storms during this year’s Atlantic hurricane season.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released its initial outlook Thursday for the six-month storm season that officially begins June 1.

The season got an early start when Tropical Storm Alberto formed last Saturday off South Carolina’s coast.

The agency predicts that this year’s total will include four to eight hurricanes. One to three of those could become major hurricanes.

This season marks the 20th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew’s catastrophic landfall in South Florida as a Category 5 storm.

Last year marked the sixth consecutive year without the U.S. landfall of a major hurricane, which are classified as Category 3 storms with sustained winds of 111 mph or higher.

I don't even know how hot it was during mid-day when I was cutting the lawn. It was crazy hot outside and thankfully the A/C kept it cool inside.

Lovely day, Figawi race was postponed 1/2 hour due to fog. Last year was 3 hours.

Oh well, I'm at work instead of drinking rum on Nantucket this year

Weather Underground says tomorrow's high is 88F. NOAA says 69F. That... seems like an awfully high margin of error for 24 hours out.

Can't believe we're looking at another 4 days of rain in the area.

This weekend it was clear Sat would be a bust with rain, but I got my hopes up Sat night when Sun was predicted to be "mostly dry"... turned out to mist/rain/spit/drizzle the entire day.

I haven't decided if my ants are drowned, or planning a resurgence... I've got a standing appointment for my annual pest person to do exterior spraying on 6/12, I know it's too early to tell, but at this point I feel like calling to cancel and waiting for a drier period--the stuff isn't supposed to be sprayed if rain is expected within 48 hours, but I know they'll just give me the "nah it's OK, and we'll come back if you need it" schpeal, they want their $218, rain be damned.

Simply lovely sunny day on Cape. Dump/ bank/ groceries/others, then mow the weeds. Not sweating from every pore. Last bag of mulch down, trellised peas, planted bush beans.

I just got hit with a microburst unlike anything I've seen before. The rain, hail, and wind that just passed through were incredible...

We had a couple of pretty striking sunny/blue-sky downpours this afternoon, but I didn't notice any thunder, lightning, hail or wind.

You wouldn't think there would so much energy in the atmosphere with this cool weather!

Your Chamber of Commerce sucks.

I'm telling you for a few minutes it went pitch black, the wind was bending thin trees in almost half, hail the size of dimes and nickels was pounding on the house, and torrential rains overwhelmed my gutters to the point that water was just pouring right over the sides in torrents.

It slowed down after about 5 minutes and then was gone in another 10 or so. It was the most powerful, quick burst of wild weather I've ever seen... and that's not an overstatement. It was just crazy for a few minutes!!

Of course I can keep secrets. It's the people I tell them to that can't keep them.

The ocean is cold even when it's 100+ outside in the middle of Summer. Only the kids are 'crazy' enough to actually swim in it when we go. Even the dog refuses to go in past his legs.

We lived on a bay as a kid. We had our own ramp, and deep water float. My sisters and I always swam off the float during the summer. The water would reach 70 on many days. If the tide was coming in (thus the water heated by the hot rocks) and a SW wind pushing the water into the cove.
